Swans satisfied with Sunderland stalemate, says Taylor
28th September 2014
Neil Taylor insisted the Swans left Sunderland satisfied after taking home a point and clean sheet from the Stadium of Light.
In a game of few chances, the Swans shared the spoils despite Angel Rangel's late dismissal after receiving his second booking.
And Taylor pointed to the positives after a first draw of the campaign.
"It wasn't the best of games, and there wasn't a lot of action in it either," conceded Taylor. "We weren't playing very well and at half-time we gathered ourselves and said the minimum we leave here with is a point.
"We were better in the second half, but the red card changed things a little.
"Then it was about bringing home a point and clean sheet, so I suppose we came away satisfied."
He added: "We weren't free-flowing with our passing, but we dealt well with their set-pieces. We showed our resolve - it's a second clean sheet in a week.
"It was no classic, but we take a point and move on.
"We must thank the fans for making the long trip up to Sunderland. They pushed us on even more so when we were down to ten men, and we are thankful for that."
